Well, yeah, but to provide such a service in a way that has any
resemblance to being secure, Intuit *must* have some secret that allows
it to send mail "from" those subdomains.  If Intuit doesn't need such a
secret, then anybody could send mail like that.

The price of the privilege of sending mail  on behalf of your clients is
that you must protect that ability so that villains cannot hijack it.
